Land of Lost Signs

Whatever words were spoken
Had been lost in translation.
Their meanings reduced to static,
Only the hiss of interference.
Sentiments mislaid, frozen in the ether
And to history bequeathed.
I ask for forgiveness,
Yet it is I that had been deceived.
Yet we no longer share a language
In which to negotiate recompense.
There are only misunderstandings left,
The result of this sign language.
